the election on tuesday, on wednesday either barack obama or mitt romney will have to start worrying about the same urgent challenge, how to stop the united states from falling over the fiscal cliff. this is, of course, the second cliff hanger that the united states has faced in two years, the first being the debt ceiling debacle. how did the world's greatest democracy start functioning so badly? maybe the next president can try to fix this broader problem. but first the fiscal cliff. unless congress acts, the spending cuts and tack increases that would be triggered automatically next january would take 5.1% out of the country's gdp in one year according to the congressional budget office. that would be one of the most severe experiments with austerity in history, larger than anything greece, spain, italy, or the united kingdom has tried. in fact, it's almost three times the size of britain's austerity program. and the results of those european programs have thus far been a dramatic slowdown in economic growth and a sharp spike in unemployment. once again, the rest of the world watches to

. >> kimberly: we told you. >> tonight, the 2012 race for the white house has been called in obama's favor. because he was unable to solve america's problems over the past four years, the president just inherited one big mess. it's a mess that he must now take ownership of because in part, he created it. the blame game stops right here, right now. it's going to take a lot of time to sort through the data to understand why last night happened. let's begin by make a few simple observations. and they are important. the first one is that americans, you get the government you want and deserve. it pains me to say this, but america right now deserves barack obama. four years ago, the public could be excused for voting for obama because he was a blank canvas on which people could draw whichever pictures they wanted. not this time. barack obama had a record that we could judge him by and a majority of american, just barely over 50% looked at that record and decided they wanted more of the same. i couldn't figure out why they arrived at that judgment, in a thousand years. but we are a self-governing
i have learned from you. and you've made me a better president. >> four more years. president obama wins re-election and said the best is yet to come for america. even as the votes in one battleground state are still unsettled. >>> good afternoon. i'm pat lawson muse. >> and i'm jim handly. we have live team coverage of this historic election in just a moment. but first we begin with the weather today, folks. right now we're tracking a strong coastal storm. >> it's making its way across the mid-atlantic at this hour and it could mean snow for some of us. let's go over to veronica johnson. >> yes, still a strong coastal storm. as i said yesterday, the storm system more off the coast and still trying to overcome a lot of dry air. so this is how our day has looked pretty much with really precipitation falling throughout. just got off the phone with a friend of mine up in essex, maryland, areas northeast baltimore, where there's been a few drops of rain falling there. let's take me up to philadelphia, pennsylvania, where they've had flakes of snow. in fact, bigger flakes. you can see co
what matters if president obama is re-elected or not. the indecision over the outcome played out once again in today's quiet session. the dow gained 19 points. s&p rallied. nasdaq advanced 5.9%. tonight i want to show you what really matters, why they might go up or down independent of the election. don't worry, i'm going to give you some picks for an upset by governor romney, although i'm on record thinking it's most likely not going to go the governor's way. but i bow to popular demand. first up, let's figure out how stocks have really done under president obama and i'm going to use a prism that i haven't seen anybody else use, the five-year lookback. you cannot use the inauguration day as the starting point. there's too much priced in at that point. almost every stock is higher, so it's irrelevant. the s&p is up 75% from inauguration. we need to go back to when the great recession was just about to begin. it became clear the next occupant in the white house could be a democrat, proved my thesis that if obama wins, it might not matter the stocks nearly as much as you think. anyway,
holiday went well. president obama and hillary clinton could not have expected their week to unfold as it did. the president was hoping to focus new attention on the promise of u.s. relations with the far east. secretary clinton was with him on what she thought would be her last overseas mission. instead, mr. obama found himself on the phone with middle east leaders as israel and hamas in gaza rained down rockets on each other. and secretary clinton headed for the region hoping to use a cease-fire to search for longer term answers. >> now we have to focus on reaching a durable outcome that promotes regional stability and advances the security, dignity, and legitimate aspirations of palestinians and israelis alike. pete: but she also made it clear the u.s. is firmly supporting its ally israel. peter baker was traveling with the president. peter, with all the changes in the region, how has the u.s. role changed in this process? >> well, of course, you saw president obama taking a very hands on role in this. something that he's been reluctant to do at times in the past. he had a bad ex
last push. u.s. president barack obama and republican challenger mitt romney are making their final pitches before americans head to the polls. obama visited three swing states. he told a crowd in wisconsin that romney would resurrect the republican policies of four years ago and preserve tax cuts for the wealthy. >> it's a choice between returning to the top-down policies that crashed our economy or a future that's built on providing opportunity to everybody and growing a strong middle class. >> romney also campaigned in swing states. he told an audience in florida that obama had failed to deliver on promises to reduce the economic burden on americans. >> tomorrow we begin a new tomorrow. tomorrow we begin a better tomorrow. this nation is going to begin to change for the better tomorrow. >> the latest poll from the washington post presents 50% of voters will cast their ballots for obama. polls indicate a close race in eight states. some suggest the candidates are running even. others give obama a narrow lead. obama carried the state four years ago due in part to younger voters. bu

romney a talking point. >> unemployment today is higher than on the day barack obama took office. >> eliot: what he didn't say was that the economy was losing 800,000 jobs a month when obama took office. during his term the economy added millions of jobs. professor at us berkeley goldman school of public policy and author of "beyond outrage: what has gone wrong with our economy and our democracy and how to fix it." hello, mr. secretary. >> hello eliot. >> eliot: there was a massive conspiracy that the economy was picking up steam. do you think the numbers prove there is an accelerating fact that there improvement. >> the reason why unemployment ticked up was because more people are trying to find jobs now, and in that particular survey the bureau of labor statistics only looks at the number of people who are trying to find jobs. when more people are trying to find jobs because they are more optimistic about there being jobs there that means the unemployment rate actually ironically goes up. the real important number is the establishment survey number. that 171,000 new jobs is a m
